Nature's Flowers


I love pink and green together lately, so when I saw the StampTV challenge for pink and green I just knew I had to play along. I love this flower from SU’s Touch of Nature. Actually, I love the entire set – it’s classic.

I tried my hand at the crayon resist technique where you stamp your image on glossy cs with stazon then color the image with a white crayon then sponge on your ink. I used my un-mounted Friendly Words wheel for my background.

I un-mounted all of my wheels and now they see way more action. I applied Aleene’s Tack it Over & Over to them and use them with my acrylic blocks now and I love them so much more than I did when they were mounted.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
